The specs of the phone are great (fantastic screen, camera, keyboard, build quality, etc). I found it to be a bit tough to type with though as the phone's keyboard was very compacted down the bottom. With the phone's weight evenly distributed through the phone, it became very top heavy when held in a typing position (something that the keyone may suffer from too by the looks of the device).
Personally I really love BB OS 10 and I'm really disappointed that BB have opted to go the Android route. Though I can understand their decision why and in all honesty, I'd recommend the KEYone over the Passport. The passport is a 2.5 year old phone now. Though if you decide to get a Passport, get the version with the rounded corners down bellow.. your palms will thank me later!

It's this phone getting SD835 or am I the only one who noticed the clock saying "8:35"???
That'd be awesome

And the software is well optimized for a fluid performance.
Color variation(s) aside, this is an underpowered, overpriced model. Chinese handsets as of late, are increasingly shipping with enhanced specs compared with those in certain markets. If this potential controlled leak has merit, then it will change only the physical appearance of the KEYone headed for China.
had it ,, got rid of
got a passport. this think is bloody brilliant unless your an app queen.
mega speakers for audio, speaker phone and call. the hub is amazing compared to the android version.
BBM is actually really good. I'm getting people to download it on there devices to.
it has third party apps and side loading available for some
I was really hoping the all black version on its first release. I wasn't really a fan of the black then silver on the top for the first iteration so this looks awesome!
its Hong Kong version not China version, play services is on the phone. it will be first out in Hong Kong then spreading over to Korea and China afterwards via their main distributor "FP" in HK.
All black looks nice but with this particular phone I think I prefer the original colors.
If the black came out first they will say the silver one looks really good? some things always appealing which comes second.... However why are photos looking as it came from the 90s phone camera
well price is 220 and after a month you get 100 refund
its not like you go in the shop with 120 and you got the phone
also you forgot to mention that you need to sign 50 euro per month contract
so you sign a contract for 50 per month and you buy it for 220 after a month they give you 100 back but you still need to pay 50 for 24months
With all its pros and cons, for the price of only 119, is definitely a good deal (although it's limited). And for the entire black variant, we'll see.
